Abstract/Contents:"Dollar spot (Clarireedia spp.) is a devasting disease of warm- and cool-season amenity turfgrasses for much of the growing season. Most turfgrass professionals routinely treat high-value acreage with preventative fungicides. While excessive dollar spot development can cause widespread blighting across large areas, previous reports have indicated that the disease commonly occurs in clusters, particularly during early stages of an epidemic. Small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs) or drones could potentially be used to map dollar spot epidemics across large turfgrass stands for a better understanding of the spatial and temporal distribution. However, the acceptable altitude for detecting dollar spot is not known. A ground-validation study was conducted to assess the ability to detect dollar spot at five heights on two creeping bentgrass golf course fairways in Radford VA. Twenty-one 1 m-2 PVC plots were placed across fairways in areas with variable dollar spot intensity. All plots were rated visually at ground level for the number of dollar spot infection centers and estimated percent disease. True colour images [add pixels] were collected at nadir from altitudes of 15, 30, 45, 60, and 90 meters above ground level using a DJI Phantom 4 Pro. Images were subjected digital analysis techniques to determine the impact of altitude on quantifying dollar spot. We found that altitude did not impact certain methods to quantify percent diseased area, but that methods used to count disease incidence quickly became unreliable at increasing heights. These methods are useful as validation of a rapid assessment tool that will help improve our understanding of dollar spot epidemics and management."
